Oil on Canvas with palette knives
What better subject to pick on during the very famous,much awaited and much celebrated mango season! Mangoes of course! This small study is done in the Alla prima technique. I must admit that the mangoes that I painted as subjects were brighter in colour. I took darker values on my range. For special effects, I placed the mangoes on a purple background (took a risk with one of my branded tops and am yet to check if there are any stains ...but anything for art!!!).
These mangoes actually are for today's dessert . Paint them before eating them!!!
